After initially determining that the four schools that canceled football games in the aftermath of the mass shooting at an Oregon community college would have to to forfeit those games, the Oregon School Activities Association reversed course and said those games would be deemed cancellations.
The OSAA cited “unprecedented circumstances” in reversing its decision.
Cancellations don’t impact the standings or state rankings.
The initial ruling would have meant losses for Roseburg, Douglas of Winston, Sutherlin and Glide high schools.
The decision to deem those games as forfeits was met with substantial and angry social media response before the decision was reversed.
